Crosscurrents in American Impressionism

This book is the second in a series on issues in the history of art. It was published in conjunction with a symposium that accompanied the exhibition American Impressionism in Georgia Collections. American Impressionism became a national style at the turn of the century, prior to World War I. The movement reflected the diversity in other arts at that time and represented the longing for stability in a country full of chaos. The book features five scholarly essays discussing the cultural and social context of the American Impressionist movement.
